The Irresistible Urges are international band collective based in Edinburgh playing eclectic original songs ranging from agit-pop to world music rhythms through to a seductive tango groove.
The only band in Scotland to have both a member who went to the original Woodstock Festival, and a drummer and Djembe player who is known throughout the Auld Reekie world music and afro-beat scene. Imagine lyrics from poetic to political and a sprinkling of quirky guitar soloing alternating with wow-factor harmonica and you start to envisage our roots oriented art/avant rock mix.
That is us: original songs and voodoo rhythms. We feature electric and acoustic guitar interplay as well as authentic harmonica sounds on some numbers and vibrant djembe and percussion beats on others. Our sparkling, quirky vocals are icing on the sonic cake. So, go on: give into The Irresistible Urge!
